Today, Cowboy Junkies share “The Things We Do To Each Other”, the latest track off their upcoming album. The song’s poignant lyrics, and accompanying video directed by Evan Cameron, comment on the fragile state of the world. “It is the oldest tactic in the playbook of social control,” says Michael Timmins. “Create a culture of fear and then begin to manipulate that fear to distract, divert, and divide. Unfortunately, the end result is that fear usually turns to hate and hate is a human emotion that is impossible to predict and control.”

Due out July 13 via Latent Recordings, All That Reckoning is a collection of songs that encourages the listener to take notice. It also may be the most powerful album Cowboy Junkies have yet recorded.

All That Reckoning was written in places that look out upon water and trees…the songs are about, empty hearts, empty nests, lost paths, lost lives, and all the reckoning that brings about the end of things, and the beginnings of something else. While the Cowboy Junkies music is characteristically easy to listen to, the songs on All That Reckoning are visceral. In true Junkies fashion, the gentleness is juxtaposed with rock that can be jarring.

Anyone who has been following Cowboy Junkies’ three decade-long journey knows the band has always traveled on its own path.  In 1988, Cowboy Junkies proved that there was an audience waiting for something quiet, beautiful and reflective. The Trinity Session was like a whisper that cut through the noise — and it was compelling. All That Reckoning is the follow up to 2013’s Polaris Music Prize Long-Listed The Kennedy Suite and with it Cowboy Junkies once again gently shake the listener to wake up.
